More than just changing the way we live our lives, technology has also transformed the way we work and redefined the concept of office space. While the traditional office — designated seating segregated by departments — is not going away anytime soon, more companies are adopting the idea of a co-working space and hot desking.
Co-working space, for those not in the know, is a commercial space that lets independent professionals come together and work. Instead of working remotely or in different offices, the shared working environment is also designed to encourage collaboration and a sense of community.
The concept of hot desking is also fairly simple: You pay a fee for a spot in a co-working space, connect to the wifi network and you’re ready to go. But in most cases, the hot desk spots are also usually set in a less than flattering interior with just the basic amenities – hardly the image of a successful entrepreneur. The Great Room, however, is redefining what hot desking means: Beautiful interiors, a dynamic ecosystem of businesses and grownup start-ups, access to community events and barista coffee.
The best part? The Great Room offers you not one, not two, but three locations to choose from, all with spectacular views of Singapore’s skyline.
